OH YEAH…. got a late start on my wedding season this year, even though I still booked out as usual, it was really nice to get started later in the year…. I had a nice loooooong break, but now I’m ready to hit it hard. Meet Kayla and Kevin, a great God loving couple. This wedding was great from the moment I drove on to the grounds of the venue…. White Oaks Barn is a beautiful place hidden in Dahlonega, GA. The weather was perfect, the wedding party was great and the bride and groom had that connection between them that all us wedding photographers love. Check out these shots from the big day ::
and this people is why a First Look is sooooo special, you just can’t get this kind of reaction during the ceremony =)
One of my favorite wedding venues to shoot at… I can go on forever about how great the staff is here and how many wonderful spots on site that there is to get great pictures… The Carl House! Meet Candis and John… what a really great couple and I only officially meet them the day of and was only around them for a about 7 hrs. After shooting almost 80 weddings, there are couples that just have “that look” towards each other… you know that genuine look that that says “at that moment nothing else is even important but them and and only them”…. and it was very evident in the pictures. This couple made my job easy when it came to capturing the emotion and love between them! I can’t wait also because Candis has also booked a “trash the dress” session in the near future, so stay tuned for that, but ofr now check out these amazing shots!! ::
PS – any future brides out there debating on a first look… the one that Candis and John shared was filled with genuine emotion…
After a 70% chance of rain on the forcast the day before….. we dodged all rain until after the reception was over… YEP! This is a fun couple, Lauren and Matt… and very easy to shoot! I knew at the engagement session that we were going to get great photos the day of the wedding because these guys needed no direction… they just did and I just shot… YEP! This wedding was held at a favorite venue of mine in Athens GA… The Taylor Grady House. My 3rd time actually shooting here and such a great venue to photograph! It was hard finding my usual handful of pictures for this wedding because there were so many good ones… so you get to see a few bonus ones… YEP!… lol checkem out ::
What a GREAT wedding this past weekend… yes i just yelled that!! A wonderful couple, meet Amanda and Chris! There was a wild twist leading up to their wedding about two weeks out… well this couple is great to shoot and we did their engagement pictures on location of their original venue… which was a very pretty place… well right at two weeks before “the day”…. the venue burned slap down =(. Very sad situation but on a good note it is making a speedy recovery… with that being said I LOVE their new choice of venue!! Lake Lanier Islands…. I have attended several weddings here but never had the opportunity to shoot there until last Saturday! Amanda had nothing but great things to say about the service and the helpfulness of the staff to put her stresses at ease. Too you future brides… Lake Lanier Islands is by far a great venue, especially in a photographers eyes… as we will get to right now =) ::
Last wedding of my 2012 season… what a great one to end on! An awesome bride, great weather and wonderful help! This bride Ashley… (to a lot of you that follow my work a good bit)… will look very familiar to you…. Just take a look at some of these post (click here). This is a lot different than what you may have seen her in some of my previous works….. they were hands down great, but this was REAL and wow could you ever tell it. The connection between her and Shane is just picture perfect… no pun intended!! While Ashley has always been the camera’s best friend… her new hubby Shane worked it pretty well just being himself! These guys had a first a look and a little birdie told me that Shane wasn’t crazy about the idea… he wanted to keep it traditional… well for all of you on the fence about a first look… th esame little birdie told me that after the night was over… that he was kinda glad they had it because of the powerful moment between the two of them…. but that’s his secrete i won’t tell anyone else =) So check out some of these amazing shots from an amazing wedding… and thanks Ashley for helping to get to where I am due to your amazing shoots in the past… maybe we’ll work together in the future too….
Fifty-Nine (59) weddings and counting, no rain outs streak continues!! 70% chance of rain this past Saturday but I wasn’t worried… I’m good luck (hint hint for all you future , outdoor wedding brides :)… Anyway meet Abbey and Matt, you may remember them from our engagement session back in February (here). I could tell by shooting these two then that we were going to get some great pictures on their wedding day, Just so happened that this is my 200th blog post (yay!)
